AWS EC2 instances: launch more than 1 of a particular type?

I was experimenting with a p2.xlarge instance in Oregon, and want to try the fastai AMI (ami-5f2fe427) now. Are folks able to launch more than one instance of the specified type? Wondering if I should stop the one running before or request for a instance limit increase.

Launch Failed
You have requested more instances (2) than your current instance limit of 1 allows for the specified instance type. Please visit to request an adjustment to this limit.

I believe that the instance needs to be terminated (not just stopped) in order for you to launch another one with an instance limit of 1. I would try to request an increase in the limit if you want to launch multiple instances.

Thanks, I’ve terminated my earlier p2 instance now, and I’ve requested for more instances, just in case.
